ABSTRACT

Background: Asthma is a chronic (long-term) lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways by spastic contraction of the smooth muscle in the bronchioles, which partially obstructs the bronchioles and causes recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. About 300 million people are suffering from asthma globally and about 10% of it belongs to India. Asthma is, therefore, also associated with oxidative-antioxidative imbalance in the body and might have a psychosomatic origin. Objective: The aim of present study was to investigate whether regular practice of Pranayama for three months can reduce severity and duration of attacks and
significant qualitative improvement and pulmonary function tests. Material and method: The present study included 30 Male Asthmatic patients 18 to 60 years of age. Then all patients were subjected for pulmonary function test by computerised spirometer “Spiroexcel PC Based Pulmonary Function Test, They underwent Anulom-Vilom Pranayama, for the duration of 12 weeks. Then again underwent pulmonary function test, was measured which was found to be significantly improved. Statistically by using student„ t‟ test. Result: Regular practice of Pranayama for 3 months significantly improved pulmonary function tests. Conclusion: We concluded that the regular practice of pranayama, slowly reduces the constriction of bronchial tube and increases, the capacity of bronchial tubes to a great extent and subsequently gradually asthma can be cured. Hence they are essence of the life.

Keywords: Asthma, Pranayama, Pulmonary function test.
